First, make the ratatouille. Fry the peppers, aubergine and fresh tomatoes in a large skillet or frying pan for 5 minutes. Add everything but the beans and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the beans in the final three minutes of cooking and season to taste

While the ratatouille cooks, make the courgette dish. Heat another large skillet and carefully add the courgette slices. Sear for 3 mins each side. Place on a plate, drizzle over with the dressing and scatter with mint and lemon zest

Now make the padron peppers. In a separate frying pan, gently heat the oil over medium heat. Fry the peppers until their skin starts to blister (it’ll only take a minute or two). Add to a plate and sprinkle over with sea salt.

Serve family-style with big hunks of fresh bread to mop the sauce. Absolutely Delicious. Enjoy x
